    is there any websites or programmes
    that tell you were the traffic is coming from

    i.e google from "this keyword" "keyword2" "keyword3"

    people coming directly to the website, etc

    I am with hostgator, I usually just check that its
    a new website but I want a specific count of where its coming from

    thank you guys in advance have a lovely evening

    Install Google Analytics on your site - it's free and provides a hella lot of data.

    You'll get all that kind of information and more - I use it for all my clients sites (20+)

    You just need to drop some JS code into your header and let her rip.

    All you need is a Google Account

    Can vote for hitstatcounter, its an instant reporting tool powered by PIWIK. Much better than Ganalytics.

    For locations, Analytics would be your best bet.
